So, I had to make a weight vs. mass graph which i did, and i also found its numeric value for the slope. I don't know what theoretical slope means, can anyone explain that to me? Please!

Thank you!

**Anonymous**, Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 6:24pmDo i need to find the g from my data for that? or do i just write that formula?

**bobpursley**, Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 6:25pmyour experimental g will be from your graph. The theortical slope is the generally accepted value of g, 9.81m/s^2
